    greg,
    Taken from the 31st Ed. (2010) "THE BLUE BOOK OF GUN VALUES" by S. Fjestad
    The Model 42 was the 1st pump action shotgun designed for the .410 bore cartridge.

    "26 or 28 in. plain, solid rib or vent. rib barrel, select checkered walnut straight grip or pistol grip stock and checkered forearm extension, 4 different chokes (full, modified, skeet, or cylinder) during pre-war (approx. ser. no. 1 to 52,000), post-war (approx. ser. no. 52,000 to 164,000) had same chokes available through 1953, when cylinder choke was dropped, and improved cylinder was added.
    100% - $6,000; 98% - $5,500; 95% - $5,000; 90% - $4,500; 80% - $4,000; 70% - $3,500; 60% - $3,000
    add 15% for vent. rib above prices are for solid rib."

    The above are of course RETAIL values based upon national average selling prices. Gun shop dealer will most likely offer 60 to 65% of book/retail value.

    Nice item!
    Looks like you've got a good one there.

    I would like to own it for about $2500.00 and if I did own it, it would take over 4K to buy it from me. Personally I like the solid rib better that the vented one.

    I hope that helps.
